William Shakespeare's classic romance has been made into a musical (West Side Story), an animation (Gnomeo and Juliet) and MTV (Baz Luhrman's Romeo + Juliet), among other things, so it's hard to know where's left for it to go onscreen.

More strained than inspired.

Perfectly respectable, but it won’t linger in the memory like Luhrmann’s.

Will likely become a cheat sheet for slacking students, but it won’t inspire them to open their hearts to the text.

A sufficiently entertaining, adamantly old-fashioned adaptation... [doesn't] rise to the passionate intensity of its star-cross’d crazy kids.

It has a sort of soapy reliability, but compare it to the blazing passion of Baz Luhrmann's modern-day version with Leonardo DiCaprio and Claire Danesin gangland LA and it looks pretty feeble.

An abbreviated version that preserves the high points, zips past the rest, and never approaches the depth of the full text.
